   <math:mo math:stretchy="false">πΕ</math:mo>

If you want that to be a < character it should be

<math:mo math:stretchy="false">&lt;</math:mo>

   found this exchange related to the subject: writing entity references..

Hey That's an old one:-)

 has there been any improvement since?

yes at the time most of the math characters were not in unicode so I was
trying to write out as entity references rather than as private use area
codes, however now the mathml dtd does not use any private use codes as 
the characters are in Uniocode.


You don't need to write entity references, the xslt system will just do
"the right thing" (given the right input).

Of course I'm only guessing that you want a < character as that's what
it looked like in the netscape screen image you showed, if you wanted
some more exotic character then the markup would need to be changed
accordingly.
